, in this case, the same president obama who mr. adelson just spent so much money trying to defeat. mr. adelson's company denies any wrongdoing. and as a very rich man, mr. adelson stands to pay a whole, whole lot more in taxes now that mr. obama has won a second term. and mr. adelson says he intends to double his spending on conservative causes with a particular focus on anti-union measures in the states. labor unions played a big part in mr. adelson's conversion to democrat to republican kingmaker. he fought with members picketing outside his hotel in las vegas. he tried to fight them in court, until find the supreme court declined to take his case. in testimony for the nevada state ethics commission, future democratic congresswoman and unsuccessful candidate shelly berkeley said adelson had told her, "old democrats were with the union and he wanted to break the back of the union, subsequently he had to break the back of the democrats." that fight, the war with labor changed sheldon adelson from being just another social liberal on the sidelines of politics to sheldon adelson, contributor on

't get a lot worse than it did. >> okay. this shows the overall unemployment rate under president obama's administration. which of the president's policies have helped the most in this? >> well, very crucial to this has been his decision to get congress to extend unemployment benefits, surprisingly. because people, when they have that money, are spending it back in the economy. remember, every 50th person you meet statistically only has food stamps today as income. and that's the result of these years of the republicans policies. so having unemployment and >> send thing unemployment benefits next year would be very important to continue to bring this number down and have businesses hire more people, because they have customers with money in their pockets to buy products and services. >> this is what could have happened if congress failed to pass the recovery act. the center on budget and policy priorities says that we've added almost $1 million more jobs because of the stimulus package. why are the republicans fighting stimulus spending now? why? is it they don't want to see president o
president obama are some of the richest states in the country. and so not only did you have him defeat romney pretty handedly in the electoral college, but people willing to sacrifice their own money to make sure that president obama, his policies made it to the white house. you know, it was the exact opposite in just the republicans. some of the red states were some of the poorest states in the country. so i think it is very interesting that when you see average american citizens who happen to be making a little bit more money willing to sacrifice for the good of the country, i think that's a good message and something to get behind and stand on. >> lz, our producers are here, can we keep them over the break? i want to be the mediator, do we have time for that? can we do that? stay on the other side of the break. i'm starting with the republican and the independent and we'll negotiate to see how we can come to some sort of an agreement. don't get mad now, don't be mad. how we can come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff. we'll be right back. music is a universal language. but when i w

obama. >> quid pro quo is what she said. detroit is bigger. they are days away from running out of money. they did vote 75% for president obama. that lady, ms. joann watson, she is explicit. she said openly, we voted for you, now you must help us. we need money, we send people to washington to bring home the bacon. now bring it home. we want help. that is an explicit call for bailout by any other name. megyn: you have to admire her audacity. a lot of people are thinking it, but they wouldn't say that the city council meeting. that doesn't mean that we need to do it or that we shouldn't do it. but she said what a lot of people are thinking. >> it was said before the last election, especially in california. chronic debt, huge taxes, overwhelming pension problems, which they have a very hard time dealing with. voting overwhelmingly for president obama. california had like 20 points for the obama team. why not ask for the help? we help you, now you help us. it is implicit in the election. megyn: detroit has a jobless rate of 18.9% in october. can you imagine that? the population has plunged
everywhere. i have been keeping my own money and nice list for washngton. visiting towns like this. >> president obama got his wish rather than negotiating with republicans he was simmering them back on the campaign trail at a factory in pennsylvania that makes angry birds toys. >> it's not acceptable to me, and i don't think it's acceptable to you for and full of republicans in congress told middle-class tax cuts hostage simply because they don't want tax rates on upper income folks to go up. >> within minutes the speaker fired back that the talks are now on life support. >> there is a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. >> replan the president for sending treasury secretary to capitol hill with a proposal that led senate replican leader to literally burst out laughing. >> the white house took three weeks to respond with any kind of a proposal. much to my disappointment it was not a serious one. >> the president campaigns on $800 -- 800 billion in tax increases by ending the bush tax cutsor the wealthy, but is now proposing. adding tax hikes on dividends and capital gains. the whi
,hey mismanaged their money and now they're coming-- don't blame the council woman they did help to get president obama elected. look, we did youolid and unfortunately it's not the right way to go, i d't think anyone wants to bail out detroit for mismanagement. >> brenda: julian, what say you. >> i think we have to define the terms, quid pro quo and bailout are unfortunate terms. i think that jas made the rit point. you have to separate long-term and short-term issues. long-term, the same way that the government reformed entitlement, the state has to reform pension programs. and many states and governments are doing that. in the short-term, however, it's another question when you're in an economically very difficult time, if the states and local governments don't get money it forces to raise taxes or increase unemployment both are which are bad for the economy. conservative president bush had three efforts to provide state aid to state and local governments that were suffering dung an economic down tournament. >> brenda: quickly, julian. >> and supported in the past. >> brenda: todd, what do u th
it will be quite like that, because there isn't as much money at stake like he in obama care. obviously, to many people on both sides of this issue, it's an important values question. it will attract lots of friends of court briefs. remember, only nine states chose to make same-sex marriage legal, and many other states, the majority of states in the u.s. have decided not to allow it or amended their constitutions to forbid it. so they're strongly held views out there, and yes, i'm sure that the justices will hear all about that by the time they get ready to hear this case argued in march. >> might we end up with a situation where in every state in america you can or cannot get married, and this will just decide this at least for the time being? >> reporter: you know, that's the interesting question here. we don't know. the doma case doesn't invite the court to answer that question. it simple says if in those states that decide to grant same-sex marriage, which is up to the states, can the federal government still refuse to recognize those marriages? even if the supreme court strikes down the dom
can't come up with enough money unless you basically eliminate them right? >> right, and you know, it's a few $100 billion perhaps. again, i don't think it's sort of asymmetrical warfare. the obamas put together a plan. if you jack up the rates on the top earners you'll get more money, and more money will be withheld from their salaries and they'll owe more at the end of the year. by contrast if you talk about ways of eliminating deductions without saying which ones they are, that doesn't get you far. that's been in the conversation for the la many years in washington. >> jennifer: carrie, you talked about a compromise. in a way to give the republicans a way of saving face, they might put forth a bill that the republicans vote present on. how likely is that? >> we did see that report yesterday, i think the speaker boehner really refuted that or. i think the plan at some point but it's not the plan now. a lot of these stories, they will be corrected at some point in time, and we may get to that point defending how things play out over the next two weeks. it really is, as we look at dec
because you voted for obama. look, detroit right now, what they need is real new leadership. what they don't need is more money going to politicians who are completely incompetent. taxpayers should not have to get tens of billions more in debt, have more losses, just because politicians in detroit can't balance the budget, they can't plan ahead. let me remind you, we are still, the taxpayers, are owed $25 billion from the audit to industry bailout. there is no reason why we should give them more money. >>eric: you have to ask yourself, again, we would loved to have asked the council woman but she would not come on, if you don't like what going on, detroit has a median household income of $25,000, far below the national average and unemployment of 18.9 percent, far above the national average, if you didn't like that, why did you vote for the guy again? >>guest: exactly. look, all the democratic politicians over there in detroit and all the unions are will the ones who are blocking real reform from happening in detroit. what they ought to do is selling off assets to get revenue, they should
problem. government doesn't need to take more money out of the economy to give stoit incompetent politicians and bureaucrats. that won't make the middle class or anybody better off. look at obama's policies played out at the state level, greece, all over the world. there is no place they are working or have ever worked. but you can point to states where governor like scott walker or john kasich or rick scott are employing the conservative principles and they are attracting businesses and creating jobs. o'reilly did a great segment comparing texas and california. that is what i want to do with heritage, showcase successes we are having. to republicans concede we need more revenue in the context of not reforming entitlement or the tax code and the president wants a blank check to borrowone future, that is nuts. we should not negotiate with ourselves. stand our ground and we have a power majority in the house. the idea of the fiscal cliff -- >> bret: democrats say the argument was made in the election. won on their side. >> it didn't win in south carolina or the majority of the stat

by ten. money suburbs kerry won by one and obama by seven. let's break it down further. here are three boom town counties to tell you a little more about them in the swing states. you had wood county, ohio. loudoun county, virginia, hillsboro county, florida. bush won wood county by almost seven points. obama won. these are boom town counties. these are the counties obama completely flipped and won. he didn't win all of these around the country but in these battleground states he certainly did. let's take a look at the monied burbs bush narrowly won in '04. mccomb county, racine county, wisconsin. porter county, indiana. we'll look at here, obama won them all and he won them all sort of swinging it by upwards of 5, 7, 8. this one swinging by 11 points. last place to look, the older and the poorer rural sections, an area where romney did well overall but saw his margin slip. union county, iowa. bush won by seven. obama here. dauphin county, pennsylvania. juneau county, wisconsin. another very white area obama flips it by seven points. so why did we see this shift in the political middle
christie thanked president obama for all this money in a statement, this pledged money and the senators from their states chuck schumer, frank lautenberg, kristen gillibrand all democrats said this $60.4 billion is a good start but they acknowledged that congress has other things on its plate and this money is not all guaranteed. some members they think might push for some spending cuts to offset all this new spending. they said, quote: this is going to be a tough fight in the congress given the fiscal cliff. some members have not been friendly to disaster relief. but the care with which the package has been put together has given us a good head start. although that head start not good enough for at least one republican member of congress frank says governor christie made a responsible request federal aid based on careful comprehensive analysis of new jersey's needs having seen the devastation firsthand in my district during his visit. i'm disappointed president obama has come to a different conclusion. we should not short change nor add strings to the support residence, businesses and
together and get things done, here's something president obama could probably do by himself that would be a single accomplish money of the his presidency. end the war on tar rohr. for the first time since 9/11 an official has raised the prospect. johnson said in a speech to the oxford last week as the battle against al qaeda continues, there will be come a tipping point at which so many of the leaders and operatives of al qaeda and its affiliates have been killed or captured such that as al qaeda as wi know it has been effectively destroyed. at that point, he says, our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict. you might not realize it, but we're still living in a state of war. this is the longest since the civil war, world war i, world war ii. it grants the president and federal government extraordinary authorities, effectively extends civil liberties for anyone the government deems an enemy and keeps us in a permanent war footing in all kinds of ways. end this situation should be something that would appeal to both left and right. james madison, the author of the const
, and they think that the only way to get the economy growing again is to spend a lot of money from the government. that's where the problem comes in. >> all right. when we come back. as he prepares for a second term. president obama faces the prospect of assembling a whole new national security team. a closer look who could fill the top post and a preview of the controversies to come next. and we can save you 10% on ground shipping over the ups store. look this isn't my first christmas. these deals all seem great at the time... but later, not so much. this isn't that kind of deal.

in 2009 by president barack obama. he has over see the disbursement throughout the country through the american reinvestment act and has done so meeting every milestone established by that act. getting money into hands of transit operators whose budgets were severely strained by the worse economic downturn since our great depression. please welcome fta administrator peter rogof. [applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through president obama's leadership, secretary lahood le
ceiling. 16.3 trillion, and at the time in 2008 when obama's running, he says it's irresponsible to take a credit card in the name of our kids to the bank of china. we have to pay that money back. now it's 16.3. they're running out of money once again, so republicans are saying all right, we've got to eat our spinach, we've got to eat our broccoli. we've got to study, turn off the tv, turn off the video games and do our homework. is that as appealing as democrats saying free health care, free day care, we'll redistribute the wealth. i mean, it seems like there's a battle for the heart and soul of the country. where does america come down, and where was america traditionally? >> well, first let's address president obama's flip flop on his philosophy there when it comes to raising the debt ceiling. he certainly condemned president bush in those years of raising the debt ceiling, and then look at where he's taken this cufnlt he's taken us into a state of bankruptcy with his changed idea on it being a good thing to raise the debt ceiling. a very scary proposal was recently revealed by geithn
for president obama. 73% of the vote went for president obama. detroit will probably run out of money within days. the word bankruptcy is being applied to the city of detroit. she says there ought to be a quid pro quo, why not. she is publicly calling for what amounts to a federal bailout. it would be called help for the city, help for the states. but you asked it. who is next. how about california? voted for president obama by 20 point. deeply in debt. to suggest we need help from d.c., maybe that detroit city councilmember opened up the door for a request for a federal bailout. martha: one of the biggest burdens on the municipality have been the deals the public unions have struck for their workers. we have seen it in places where the promises have been made where there i not the money to support. i there any question the administration -- that the president is open to the idea that the president is open to bail out these municipalities? >> there is no mention so far. but you are right to point out the union connect. president obama's reelect heavily supported by municipal unions and it's
will be impacted. but citi says the changes will help save money this year and more in 2013. >>> president obama is expected to announce his nominees for secretary of defense and secretary of state. that's according to white house sources. reportedly, former republican senator, chuck hagel is on the short list for secretary of defense to replace leon panetta who is stepping down. another top contender, john kerry. but the president is also considering to replace hillary clinton with john considerry. susan rice for the united nations, she is still facing opposition because of statements she made about the libyan attack. >>> president obama is meeting with two different groups today. both have concerns about the fiscal cliff crisis. he will lead with the ceos of business leaders and then later, he will meet with native- american tribal leaders. the one issue where he's refusing to budge in fiscal cliff issues. >>> the voters passed prop 30, which raises taxes on people who earn more than $250,000 a year. it also increases the sales tax. well, the ucla and der son forecast says because of prop 30 -
bet. almost half of this country voted against president obama. the democrats have to bend it. if we have to go off of a fiscal cliff, if we let him have 100% of he once, let it rip. i make good money now. i was almost at the poverty level. i understand how hard it is down there. i pay taxes when i was above poverty level. every person in a america needs to pay some taxes, even if it is only $10. i love c-span. host: you said you would not be willing to give the president 100%. he would be willing to go off the cliff if that was the demand. how much would you be willing to bend? caller: i think we have to bend a lot because he won the election. but we are spending where we do not have money. yes, we have to bend it. i am truly a republican. i believe in our philosophy. most of the time, now 100%. i vote republican because they believe we should work for a living and not be handed out. if president obama thinks he deserves 100%, he is so wrong. he is not american. he is just not for us. it is always funny to me. i listen to you and you are great. when i listen to you, i think you the
the age is the right idea. i'm going to show you the money later on. but what she did not do is not rule it out. if republicans end up getting it, it's something the obama administration told john boehner they were willing to trade away if republicans end up getting it, that will feel like a big win for them. enough to unlock the tax deal. i'm not saying the final negotiation here will be easy. one thing that's a tough sticking point in negotiations. we began tonight which the white house wants to get rid of forever. there's not been a lot of republican movement on the forever deal. i'm not saying the final negotiation here will be easy. one thing that's a tough sticking point in negotiations. we began tonight which the white house wants to get rid of forever. there's not been a lot of republican movement on the forever deal. i'm not saying they are not going to get to a deal before the deadline, but don't be fooled by the posturing. there is a sailboat. it's coming clearer. joining us is the former budget director for the obama administration. vice chairman at citigroup, a veteran of th
today mitch mcconnell was on the senate floor continuing to hammer away at president obama. >> what the president's really interested in, as we learned just yesterday, is getting as much taxpayer money as he can first by raising taxes on small business that he believes are making too much money, and then on everybody else. >> it does feel like there is some negotiating going on behind the scenes here. we are told that president obama and speaker john boehner on the republican side of the capitol had a conference call yesterday about 20, 28 minutes in length. we don't know what was said. that's probably a good sign they are not leaking the contents of that call. that's a sign that there is some negotiation going on. something is happening behind the scenes but we just don't know what it is right now. back to you. >> eamon javers, thank you very much. >>> what can be done to break the stalemate in washington? representative jack kingston is a republican from georgia, member of the house appropriations committee. welcome, congressman. good to have you with us. >> thank you, tyler. >> w

, they can't do something to bridge this in to a conversation next year. but when president obama says things through tim geithner that he said about raising tax rate and spend additional money, which is crazy, it makes people more concerned that a big overall grand bargain can't be reached next year. >> eric: martin, do you think a grand bargain won't be reached? >> i think it will. talk about what is going on now here first. you know, the president won the election. he campaigned on the basis of higher rates for the taxpayer income earners. no surprise. the republicans are asking shocked that the president is taking a tough line. i think they expect him to roll over and play dead. that is not the way things work in this town. he won the election. and he told the american people we were going to raise the rates on the top income earners. now that is what he is trying to do. i think there is some give here. i don't think it has to go up to 39.6. right now it's 35. maybe it goes up a point or two. listen, republicans need time to sort through all of this. there will be a short-term agreement.
obama, actually wrote that one. our money embroiled in fiscal cliff. >>> still ahead on "starting point," what's next for hillary clinton when she leaves the administration. mayor clinton? >> probably not. >> new york city is looking for a mayor. >> maybe something with a little more beach front property the next few years before thinking about iowa. >> i don't know. you're watching "starting point." we'll take some guesses. 0 calor? your world. ♪ [ whispers ] real bacon... creamy cheese... 100 calories...

money there. they are going to hit me and there is going to be a carbon tax. president obama needs to expand the government. i wish the majority of the middle class saw it that way. more than half the country felt that his left wing agenda was it. it isn't eventually the middle class is going to get nailed. and the spin will be that republicans jacked up the economy so badly. >> i think that is where this is going. i think there could be a tax and maybe it can't get through congress. but i have never seen a time, i have seen polls on this. taxing the rich. they know that. one last point here. going from government to welfare getting a job. do you know there is a high tax rate? we have to figure out a way to make it work so that people don't get hurt. >> i think the government is probably 80% too large. that would be a tremendous engine to close the gap between the rich and the poor. they can will to their children. we don't have that now. i think that is the engine of both in the conneconomy. but i'm not going to give up the fight. larry elder. well done. good luck on the book and
. >> i don't think it's even close to what president obama was saying. look. there's a feeling in this country that there are people who make money without any consideration for the workers, and look, that happens. i think that that's a fair criticism to make, and people just don't have the same kind of job stability that they used to have, so those are fair criticisms, but to turn this into, you know, rich people are urinating on poor people kind of thing, it definitely goes too far. >> guys, good to see you. obviously it worked a little bit in the campaign. >>> we have a late breaking development on this very story. our cameras caught up with ed asner. he's performing in a play outside the fox news studio. hear what he has to say about this terrible video he narrated. we'll have that for you tomorrow night here on hannity. we'll play his response. >>> still ahead tonight, you better stop textin texting. if the government and law enforcement has their way, they may live on for years. we'll exa abou examine about hog brother is about to impede your right of speech. >>> egypt is
